  2. Ability to provide a link to a certain cell within online workbook.

    Would be nice to be able to provide a link that goes directly to a certain cell within an online workbook. Ex. Need someone to approve a certain item in a large list of items within excel online workbook. Instead of them having to try and find item, link would take them directly to the correct cell and sheet within the workbook.

  4. Ribbon should retract once Custom Sort has been selected

    Once Custom sort is selected the ribbon stays extended meaning you then can't see the Column Letters that you need to refer to. This only is a problem when you have the ribbon on auto-retract

  8. Excel integration into VS .net core web apps.

    Maybe an Excel-like data grid for VS web apps that takes a JSON data object.

  10. Excel tab option to move as sidebar

    Tabs are usually shown at bottom. While working on long named tabs and too many tabs, i will be interested moving this tabs on side so that i can go over different tabs quickly instead of scrooling.

  12. I would like a way to lock the different sheet tabs at the bottom of the excel workbook.

    I have to double click a worksheet tab at the bottom of the workbook to keep it from moving. Maybe make it an option to lock them or not.

  13. Excel should have a easy way to see rows below specific index or above specific index.

    I want to view rows below for eg index number 'a' or above index number 'a'. I don't have any shortcuts to do it.

  18. Open sheets in A1

    Hi,

    I have no idea why but whenever I open Excel files, they open in places where there are no values. There could be an opt-in setting to have it always set to A1 of the first sheet of the file.

  19. In the files tab, add or remove basic column typest

    Like in sharepoint, being able to add a column for notes directly associated to a file in a single view helps.

  20. Allow outlining with a protected sheet

    Given that outlining only works for a protected sheet in Excel if you apply a macro, it would be good to allow outlining for a protected sheet in Excel Online - this should be easier to achieve than expecting Excel Online to support macros in general.

    This would go hand-in-hand with the ability to protect / unprotect a worksheet in Excel Online.
